Workshop: Breaking Down the Barriers

We live in unprecedented times. The extent of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity that affect our lives, our relationships, our organizations, our communities, and the world has reached new levels.   

We live in a world where all things are intricately related and dealing with volatility and uncertainty is rapidly becoming the number one challenge.

Individuals now have the capability to change the social glue of society and the increasing disruptive changes we witness, result from built up tension in the system that is waiting to be released. Trust underpins the way we work and collaborate and this is being transformed by the increase in distributed accountability.

The craft of our professions is needed more than ever. New questions arise for those of us who have the ability, experience, methods and approaches, and who can take the lead in responding to new challenges. So how do we work with this, how do we manage this, what are the new tools we need to be able to operate in this transformational period?

Workshop: Argument Marshalling on the SWARM Platform

This workshop will focus on a promising new  structured analytic technique: Argument Marshalling (AM). We'll explore how AM can be used to represent and clarify sets of arguments in preparation for further critical analysis, or for presentation of arguments in some form such as a written report. The workshop will finish with an introduction to our IARPA funded SWARM Platform, which will facilitate collaborative AM.
